Full Description
Welcome to Orange Tree House where we specialise in making your wedding day one to truly remember. We fell in love with Orange Tree House, situated in the pretty historical village of Greyabbey on the shores of Strangford Lough, over 8 years ago. Since then we have restored the beautiful 1820's stone barn style church and transformed it into a unique conference and wedding venue. When we opened in October 2014, for the first time in over 110 years, a bride and groom celebrated their wedding here.   We believe in "Your day, your way". Whether you opt for a traditional, elegant wedding or take a more alternative approach, we will endeavor to accommodate your plans. Orange Tree House is a totally private venue but, unlike most other private venues, we also provide all of your catering, bar, furniture, tableware etc. so all you need to do is choose your date, menu and drinks then relax and enjoy your day.   As well as having the beautiful stone barn style banqueting room with its exposed beams at your disposal, you and your guests can enjoy the Orangerie with its open fire. You can sip a cocktail or two in our stunning new guest lounge which overlooks Strangford Lough (a designated area of outstanding natural beauty)and onwards towards Whiterock Bay, with the Dromara Hills and the Mourne Mountains as a backdrop. Here you can also relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets, whatever the weather.   The function room can comfortably accommodate up to 132 guests for ceremonies and dinner with room for extra evening guests up to a total of around 160. We have over 100 bed spaces within a 5 minute radius, many within walking distance and are located half an hour from Belfast.   We would be delighted to show you around and discuss your plans.

Our wedding day went off without a hitch
We finally had our perfect day on 17th July this year after booking orange tree house in 2018! Planning a wedding hasn't been easy in these last few years but Orange Tree House were amazing from start to finish. Every time I contacted them, Sian got back to me so quickly and they looked after us so well when we were rescheduling, including Jan who had a really lovely phone call with us at the beginning of this year and eased all our covid-wedding worries. Our wedding day went off without a hitch, everything was so perfect. The setting itself is so stunning with amazing photo opportunities right on your doorstep. The staff were all fantastic at looking after us and our guests, polite and helpful at all times. Gary was amazing, making us all laugh before we headed down the aisle, and looking after our every need all day. The food was out of this world 😍 we had the luxury barbeque and I wish I could eat it all again! Couldn't recommend Orange Tree more highly. The most perfect, idyllic venue with top class staff and amazing food!
